I have had a I-Robot Roomba for years and was intrigued with the squared off front of the Neato unit enabling this machine to get into corners which my Roomba does not do. Unlike the Roomba that has to bump into objects the Neato anticipates obstacles and avoids them. I am continuously amazed at how much pet hair and dirt my Neato picks up every day. It also doesn't seem to mind carpets and easily transitions from hardwood flooring to tile and carpet. It's also very easy to program and I recently connected it to my laptop and downloaded some updates that are supposed to make it better at docking. (not sure if it's made any difference). Occassionally the device seems to have trouble finding a connection to the docking stations but most of the time it's fine. Usually I'm not home when it's cleaning so it's really nice to come home to a clean house. Sometimes the unit will have to take a break from cleaning to return to docking station and charge some more. This is the only area of concern since batteries in all of these units seem to be expensive and at times unpredictable. All in all, I have positive feelings about this purchase.
